"I have a Bow and a Stern Sideshift Thruster. When we moved up to the 32' Carver with the Flybridge, it was intimidating. It's wider, it's longer, not as easy to see off, and any breeze at all and you are a kite. Having the thrusters on this boat has enabled us to go out whereas, before we had the thrusters on, there were days we wouldn't go out because of the conditions. It's very nice to be able to catch the bow when the wind comes up, especially if I am backing in to a slip. I haven't noticed any difference in performance at slow or high speeds. Tight slips, wind, docking on the wrong side, whatever – it just takes all the stress out of my boating. There won't be another boat I'll own without Sideshift Thrusters on it."
